Sydney Murphy

Grade 4

I earned my bachelor’s and my master’s degrees at American University in Elementary Education and Teacher Leadership, respectively. When I am not at school, I love knitting, hiking, and cooking. I absolutely love making baby blankets for anyone I know who is expecting, and scarves and hats for anyone else. This year, I discovered how awesome Shenandoah National Park is, and checked off another part of the Appalachian Trail! I learned to cook and bake from my grandmother, and still love baking with her. I have always absolutely loved working with kids and can’t wait to get to know each personality and individual skill set in my classroom!

We embrace both traditional learners and ones with mild to moderate learning challenges – dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and challenges related to anxiety and executive functioning. Many of our students excel in some areas while benefiting from support in others.
